Garbage Pick Up

The City provides weekly garbage collection services for residents. The City recently purchased a second Automated Garbage Truck to replace the current two man rear loader truck. This new automated truck will allow the City to provide the same great service,  be more efficient, and provide a safer work environment for our Sanitation Employees.  There will no longer be an employee on the back of the truck to move the carts, residents will need to follow the regulations below and place the carts in the proper location to have their carts serviced.


  • The garbage carts are the property of the City of Collegedale. The garbage carts are assigned to each address that has a single family residence or larger on it.  If a resident moves, they must leave the cart at the residence.
  • Garbage carts MUST be placed at the street by 7:00 am and be removed from the street by the end of the day.
  • Garbage carts MUST to be placed at the edge of the street, facing the street (wheel need to be toward the house), and placed inside the white painted square (if applicable).
  • Garbage carts MUST be spaced at least 4ft apart, and 4ft away from any objects (mail box, power pole, parked car, etc).
  • The weekly pickup is for household garbage only. No brush, yard waste, or hazardous waste except for sharps which MUST be in proper disposal containers.
  • All garbage MUST be placed inside the City container for pickup. The City will not pickup garbage out side of the provided container. Garbage cart lids MUST be closed entirely and nothing protruding out of the container.
  • All trash should be bagged. When it is not bagged, it could cause a mess on the roadways and we are NOT responsible for litter on the roadways.
  • One additional garbage cart per household is allowed for a one-time fee of $95. The extra garbage cart is the property of the City and the City encourages recycling as opposed to getting an extra cart. For an extra cart please contact Jamie Bialeschki at Public Works 423.468.1981 or at
